The United States expressed serious concern to the Afghan government over the return of a feared warlord just days before key elections.

General Abdul Rashid Dostum is a notorious ally of President Hamid Karzai, who is expected to win a second term in office on Thursday in Afghanistan’s second presidential election. But he could be forced into a run-off. Dostum is a leader of Afghanistan’s Uzbek minority based largely in the north.
